Getting ready for bed. Log my workout - yaay. Log my food - not yaay.

I'd only eaten about 1000 calories. I was not hungry, felt fine. But I'm supposed to have around 1500 calories. So off to the kitchen I go.

Some left-over chicken? it weighed 97 grams. I ate it, and logged it. Still far from minimum calories for the day. Raw cauliflower? That won't make much of a dent but I weighed out some and ate it. Ah - yogurt! I ate 8 frigging ounces of yogurt. Still quite a ways from minimum.

Well, I cooked some garbanzo beans this weekend. I thought 'I will make a little hummus'. I measured everything, pulsed it up, and came up with 349 grams of fairly good hummus. I ate 69 grams - about 1/5th. And now, of course, I'm over for fat, and for calories, (it was the walnuts that did it) and too full! And on top of everything I'm late going to bed.

    I've done this. It can be so frustrating. Some days I wish I just didn't have to deal with food at all. It just seems like so much trouble, especially now that I don't use food for entertainment or personal reward. I keep hoping I'll come to some balanced agreement with food. Still waiting. I hope you sleep well, at least.

    Oh my gosh but I could have written this blog post. Some days I feel like I've eaten all day, but just can't get to my calories requirement. Good for you that you made an effort with this, hopefully today will be easier - at least you have some nice hummus on hand. emoticon

    Tomorrow or should I say later on today brings on a brand new opportunity to stay within your dietary range. emoticon
